An unusual Russian egg that was made circa 1900-1910 in Moscow. These eggs are very sought after as they were made in the early 1900s before the Russian revolution. It is a very pretty egg with fine detail of flowers in the spun glass. The Russian Easter egg tradition dates back to pre-Christian times when people saw eggs as fertility symbols and as symbols of protection. Eggs represented renewal or new life. When Russian Orthodoxy was adopted, eggs took on Christian symbolism. These eggs are lovely to collect and wear on a chain spaced at intervals.
